Peru vs Scotland
International Friendlies
Date: Wednesday, 30 May 2018
Kick-Off at 02:00 UK / 03:00 CET
Venue: Estadio Nacional de Lima, Lima.

Peru host Scotland aiming to build on fine showings from March friendlies when they comfortably saw off the strong European hopefuls Croatia and Iceland by two goals margin each. Ricardo Gareca’s men earned their first World Cup appearance in 36 years in some fashion as they ended the qualifying campaign with a strong run of three wind and draws apiece.

Scotland, on the other side, failed to make it count in the Group F even though they came into the final day clash against Slovenia as genuine contenders for the second place. A win in Slovenia would have earned them the play-offs challenge, but they only drew 2-2 to stay lock on points with Slovakia as none of teams made it to the play-offs. Scotland have played three friendlies ever since the end of the qualifying campaign netting just once in the process (against Netherlands, Costa Rica and Hungary).

Peru vs Scotland: Head-to-head

  • Peru won the lone previous head to head encounter played back at the 1978 World Cup in Argentina (3-1).
  • The two sides have not played each other ever since.

Peru vs Scotland: Prediction

The hosts are undefeated in last seven games in all competitions if we count the aforementioned wins over Croatia and Iceland. Gareca will be without the star veteran striker Paolo Guerrero who will miss the World Cup because of a drug test failure (there are rumours that FIFA might actually give him the chance to feature the competition).

Nonetheless, it’s Jefferson Farfan who leads the line in Guerrero’s absence. The forward had a successful season with Lokomotiv in the Russian Premier League where he notched ten goals. Gareca’s defensive line functioned very well lately as Los Incas shipped only two goals in last six matches including the goalless draw away at Argentina and a 2-0 win over Croatia.

Given they’ll be up against Scotland who have been struggling for goals lately, we have to take the hosts to keep a clean sheet as the main betting option at 1.90 odds. You can alternatively try with Peru to win by two or more goals at the 2.20 odds.

Peru vs Scotland: Bet Tips

  • Peru to keep a clean sheet @ 1.90
  • Peru -1.5 handicap @ 2.20.
